Video: My first mobile operation on 20 metres
I managed to squeeze a bit of radio in at lunchtime today thanks to my newly acquired Watson WHF 20 mobile whip antenna for 20 metres (thanks Jim!). I was ensconsed on the hill of Faughart overlooking Dundalk and the bay and managed to catch a bit of European action. There was good Stateside action, with many American stations blasting in, but despite me calling none of them heard me. So I sat on a frequency and managed to get a new prefix - Mike Uniform (MU) - Guernsey Island. I also got a YL Latvia station so I was happy enough.
Thanks to Tony EI4DIB for recording this from his Icom 746 at home in Drogheda.
